Boosterrific.com: The Complete, Annotated Adventures of Booster Gold

It has been 89 Days since Booster Gold last appeared in a DCnU comic book.

 Happy Birthday, Adam Beechen

Everyone say "Happy Birthday" to Adam Beechen, longtime writer of DC Animated Universe comics.

Beechen hasn't written many Booster Gold stories, but he did feature our favorite hero in 2004's Justice League Unlimited #2, where a fresh-face Booster Gold learned to let Superman cheat at cards. (Talk about role reversal!)

Thanks, Adam!

 Now I Think DC Is Just Messing with Us

Friday, December 19, 2014

First Booster Gold showed up on the cover of Futures End #25, despite appearing nowhere in the book. Then he was on the cover of last week's Smallville: Continuity #1 without participating in that issue. Now, DC has announced that March will be "Movie Cover" theme month, including this cover featured on Buzzfeed.com:

Can you see the little Blue and Gold and Fire and Ice sitting on the Hall of Justice between Beetlejuice's Deadman's legs? That's the variant cover by Joe Quinones. The regular cover gives no hint that the classic JLI are around, but perhaps the solicitation does:

JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK #40
Written by J.M. DeMATTEIS
Art by ANDRES GUINALDO and WALDEN WONG
Cover by GUILLEM MARCH
MOVIE POSTER Variant cover by JOE QUINONES

They've been to the edge of time and back again, but now the arcane forces with which they've fought will make one last attempt at eradicating the Justice League Dark from existence. Major changes are in store as the team faces its final fate!

Will those "major changes" include an appearance by the JLI? Doubtful, but I guess we'll find out for sure on March 25. Thanks to Swingin' Around for the spot.

 This Place Is a Dump

Thursday, December 18, 2014

"Up in Smoke" is a tragedy, not a comedy, when you're talking about comic books.

Last week's poll question: Which comedy duo's stylings do Blue and Gold most remind you of? (32 votes)

Which comedy duo's stylings do Blue and Gold most remind you of?

The holidays are here, and they fall on a Thursday this year. So the poll is moving to Fridays until after New Years. (Fridays used to be the regular poll days, so this might familiar to long-time visitors.)

This week's poll question: Which one feature would you miss least if it disappeared from Boosterrific.com?

 Genius in Action

Wednesday, December 17, 2014

Ever wonder how Keith Giffen and J.M. DeMatteis work together to produce a classic Blue and Gold comic? Last week DeMatteis welcomed us behind the curtain, from plots to pencils to dialogue to finished product.

By all means, if you've any interest in the creative process that goes on behind many of Booster Gold's comic book appearances, you should visit J.M DeMatteis's website, Creation Point, and read all about it. Thanks to DeMatteis for sharing (and co-creating the greatest comic book duo of all time!).

 The Internet Is Made of Lists

Tuesday, December 16, 2014

The website WatchMojo.com has been on a Booster Gold tear as of late. First they included Booster in one of those click-bait Top 10 list: "Top 10 Underrated Heroes." Apparently they think Booster Gold is living up to his billing as The Greatest Hero You've Never Heard Of.

I'm not even going to pretend that I agree with that list or its facts — a Booster Gold movie is in the works? That's news to me! — but I do love seeing Booster Gold get some recognition. And so does WatchMojo. Figuring that their audience really didn't know who Booster Gold was, they made a video recapping his origin story!

Thanks to WatchMojo for spreading the word about how awesome Booster Gold is. And thanks to CDN and Adam Stacks for the links.
